disrupted by new players like square and paypal and google. the stock has been hit, but our fund manager we talked to think it's been unfairly hit. any time an industry is being disrupted, that's a good opportunity. >> u.s. bancorp? >> this is an old fashioned bank. focuses on deposits and loans and wealth management. none of the other stuff that can get you into trouble. this is one our clients really liked. >> this year dividend plays have been huge. everyone is looking for income. they look to these companies that have a good yield. the two that came through here were ford and, as it happens, our majority owner comcast. >> yes. so ford, you know, the auto recovery story is pretty significant. it's still happening. cars on the road are older. the replacement rate is going to go up. with ford, it has a rock-solid balance sheet. its dividend yield, we think, could go up. comcast is interesting. not because it's the boss' of "closing bell," it has a new revenue stream in nbc universal, which is up 32% in the third quarter because of the olympics and the election. you know, on the other side,

be the number one toy? >> there is certainly a chance of that and i think google and amazon they will capture the more price sensitive customer. i think important thing to consider in smartphones and tablets apple doesn't need 100% of the market. if you think about the smartphone business in total over the next few years, most of the growth will come from emerging markets. it will be lower priced hand-sets and probably android. as long as apple maintains premium share of smartphone market say at high-end we think they will be fine. david: bring an, bring it to where we started and tax issue and how much that apt affects the trade now. the people locking in profits now and are selling will they buy back in at the lower rate after the first of the year? >> i certainly think that is the case. it is certainly possible if they have a good quarter in the beginning of january. so i think that could be a catalyst to get investors to pile back in. david: let me press you, brian before you go, what do you think the price will be when that happens, when it gets back to the new normal? what will it be in

accused the likes of starbucks, google and amazon of immorally dodging taxes in the uk. although they've done absolutely nothing illegal. steve is braving the inclement weather in the uk with more on this story. how much of a mention and a focus is this going to get with everything else, steve? >> well, isn't it wonderful, the politicians when they're running for their own lives look for another scapegoat, and who better than those u.s. corporations who aren't paying enough uk tax. but as you quite rightly said, they're doing absolutely nothing illegal and doing everything that they should do in terms of creating shareholder value. they're doing what they should do, ie looking for ways to minimize their tax burden, increase their profit and potentially increase the special dividends no those u.s. investors will be getting ahead of the fiscal cliff. but let's get another view of this. gary richards is a senior corporate tax partner. that's the point. these american companies who are evading taxes who the politicians want to come down on, they're doing nothing wrong. the problem lies in

. microsoft, 87% of its cash. cisco. oracle at 80%. apple at 68%. google at 64%. that's important to note. the reason why these companies have so much cash overseas is that they've been global growth stories. when microsoft sells product overseas the proceeds go into accounts over there. don't come to the u.s. unless microsoft needs to buy something here. you can see it plays out in a company like apple, too, where international launches and international retail expansion have become far more important than the u.s. where growth is concerned. just five years ago apple had 58% of its cash in the u.s. this is actually a big issue for a company like cisco where john chambers has been very straightforward about saying if the federal government lets us repay treeuate this cash, bring it to the u.s. without a big penalty, we'll use it to hire and grow in this country. if not we'll hire less and, by the way, keep making bigger overseas acquisitions, too. all of this gets a bit dicier when you consider a lot of u.s. companies have gotten pretty good at avoiding tax on international sales by using

goldman sachs talking about avalanche basically they can continue to battle against google, the market share that some people have been speculating apple was likely to lose. cheryl: that is a stock to watch for the week and today we will see you in 14 minutes. just talking about the november unemployment rate, dropping 7.7%. 6,000 new jobs added. far better than expectations but behind that number is the fiscal cliff. if congress doesn't act jobless unemployment benefits will go from a 72 week maximum down to 27 weeks. could that force a spike in the jobless rate again for 2013? joining us is todd schoenberger of wells fargo, senior economist. i know you were not thrilled with the numbers that came out today but you also have the issue of unemployment benefits and what that does to the economy. are you worried? >> you bet i am worried. if we leap off of the fiscal cliff you are looking at a minimum of 500,000 jobs eliminated and i am not talking low-wage jobs. i am talking about high five digit to six digit jobs. that will impact the overall economy. not just in the united states, also
